Abstract: The objective of this project was to explore the encapsulation of mycolic acids into vehicles other than liposomes for delivery into macrophages and addressing the challenges of low solubility. As vehicles nanoparticles (NP) have the advantage over liposomes in that they can increase the stability of the drug as well as effect controlled release of the agent as a function of in vivo particle degradation.
